Fun all around

We went for a late dinner, right before the transition into the "weekend night crowd". Which was perfect. It's in a great location if you're looking for a night on the town. We were seated for dinner, the service was pleasant and efficient. The food was excellent. We were one of the last ones... read more

The food was great! They had a burger special and cold beer on a hot Washington, DC day. What more could you ask for?

got a tip from the concierge to hit this place for brunch. We loved it here! Great background tunes, laid back atmosphere, tons of Alice in Wonderland art, and good food. Bottomless mimosas ($12) are free flowing. Large, filling portions and got some nice items - Tostadas Rancheras were excellent, a pair at the table got the Hangover Helper and... More

I can't speak for their food, but we had a good time at happy hour. It's a great location in Dupont Circle. The first floor bar was pretty crowded so we went upstairs. It was a comfortable atmosphere with a nice selection and very reasonable prices. The Alice in Wonderland theme was pretty cool and not too overbearing. We will... More

Very fun place to spend and evening. I visited the Mad Hatter twice during my most recent trip to DC. Both nights (Wednesday and Thursday nights) the place was jumping. The bartenders were efficient at best and somewhat rude at worst. Thursday night there was a VERY young crowd, mostly recent college graduates and it was very loud.

The tostada breakfast was delicious and came quickly but it took quite some time before we could get the attention of a server who, although not our server, did graciously take our order. The food is worth a return

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is a great neighborhood establishment, with good comfort food. The appetizers were excellent, and served promptly. The salads were fresh and had the right amount of dressing. The entrees were well prepared, and not overdone. The serving sizes are average. You will leave satisfied but not overstuffed. The value is outstanding -... More

It has a lovely night scene, with some amazing drinks. But the brunch is great ! I have been to Mad Hatter only at nights and to see it transform into this quiet little place for brunches was awesome.

Went on a Friday night for dinner. Bar area was pretty busy with 25-30 something professionals drinking happy hour special drinks. Was carded out door which gave the impression that it was more of a bar scene then a restaurant...We waited 5 minutes to be seated while the hostess was in the restroom. The tables past the bar were not... More
